Praise for Arlene Kay’s Boston Uncommons Mysteries. Arlene Kay spent twenty years as a Senior Executive with the Federal Government where she was known as a most unconventional public servant. An entertaining first entry into the Boston Uncommons Mystery series. New York Journal of Books on Swann Dive. I can't wait for the next book in the series! -Jaye Roycraft, author of Rainscape. Experience in offices around the nation allowed her to observe both human and corporate foibles and rejoice in unintentional humor.

Nicole Nelson has retreated to the small Cape Cod village of Goodhaven to finish her PhD thesis in a place where she can concentrate without distractions or romantic entanglements. Her friend, the crusty Shelby Whitholm, had offered her a place where she could stay inexpensively and focus on her work. Her plans go awry when Shelby is found brutally murdered.

While Shelby was warm and maternal toward Nik, she was also the outspoken town gadfly, not afraid to express her opinions at town meetings or take on the powers that be. As Nik follows the trail of the crime, she discovers a numbers of secrets about Shelby, including that the old woman had been a collector of classic comic books, now worth a fortune--yet one more motive for murder.

Enter Alajandro Lee, an attractive stranger from the west coast who had been contracted by Shelby to appraise her collection--and who was the one who found her dead. Goodhaven is populated with an eclectic cast of characters, all of whom seemed to have a motive for murder. All, along with the newcomer, are suspects.

Nicole is bright and sassy, but a touch insecure, as she confronts her attraction to Aljandro Lee. The cast of colorful characters lead the two of them on a merry chase.

Arlene Kay's breezy style and witty dialog make Die Laughing a thoroughly enjoyable read. This is her second novel and I think it's safe to say she's mastered the cozy mystery romance.

Kept reading because the actual mystery was interesting. Unfortunately, the sappy love story was off-putting. It was repetitive and laughable. Her "nether parts tingled" on several pages and the descriptions made him seem slimey. "he ran his fingers through his thick black hair, no grey". She's supposed to be so beautiful that all of the men in town are salivating and he's repeatedly described as "lithe". The author needs to decide what genre to write in. This was more bodice-ripper than cozy mystery.

Die Laughing is a wonderful fast-paced read--you won't be able to put it down. Arlene Kay has created a quintessential New England village that on the surface seems charming and peaceful. When the gruesome murder of the retired librarian occurs, the reader is drawn into a mystery where secrets abound and almost everyone has a motive. The plucky heroine is determined to solve the murder of her friend despite the danger of losing her life to the murderer and losing her heart to a mysterious stranger. With vivid characters and a plot that keeps you guessing until the end, Die Laughing doesn't disappoint.

Arlene Kay's second novel is another hit. A mix of cozy mystery and romance novel, Die Laughing has a smart, young woman determined to find out who murdered her friend, Shelby. It seems Shelby was murdered for her unususal but very valuable comic book collection. In the small Cape Cod town of Goodhaven, there seem to be enough suspects around to shock Cabot Cove, Maine. The read is a joy ride and, since I'm in Florida for the winter, a perfect beach read. Well done, Arlene Kay.

I read plenty of cozy mysteries and DIE LAUGHING was a treat. Cape Cod is the perfect setting for mischief and murder especially when the victim is the local nosey parker. The protagonist (Nicole Nelson) is a seasoned blend of brains and grit, someone I would like as a friend. The author's social commentary reminded me of Agatha Christie's shrewd character sketches. Frankly I was so busy enjoying the scenery that I forgot my job as a detective and had to re-read several chapters to pick my prime suspect. (I was wrong, by the way, so wrong), This was an enjoyable read that ended too soon. The love interest was sexy and sufficiently mysterious to make me question his motives throughout the novel. Good job!

Arlene Kay's Die Laughing begins with a bang, races you along with the speed of the Indy 500, and closes with a kiss. The story is infused with fascinating characters who are involved in the mystery in ways you will not predict. You'll not find a sleepy old Cape Cod town here, in fact, you'll wonder how anyone sleeps at all in this fictional town of Goodhaven after such a grisly murder has been committed.

Who killed town eccentric Shelby Whitholm and why? After she is found murdered in her own home, and a suprising discovery is made as to the possible motive, you'll be drawn right into this story and the compelling and interesting mix of characters, any of whom could have done the deed. Was it Mayor Haas, "nephew" Jarrod or his fiancee, bookstore owner Nik, cranky Professor Goldman, or the new arrival in town Alex Lee? The story takes several twists and turns that will keep you guessing right until the end who the guilty party is.
Arlene Kay quickly draws you into her well-written murder mystery and keeps you hooked through to the very end. The setting is spot on. It's quirky and small town, yet peopled with characters from far and wide. They each bring their own idiosyncrasies and intrigue to the chase for the truth. But what is the truth? I thought I knew who dunnit until the moment I realized I was flat-out wrong. Kudo's to the author. I can't wait for more.
